Felix Lobrecht: Hype (2020)


I watched this (with my non-German speaking girlfriend) to help brush up on my German via more exposure to the language. We BOTH laughed REALLY HARD, throughout much of the show, but I think we were also the right audience for it. Allow me to elaborate...If you're a ultra PC-Police neo-Liberal type, you may want to steer clear of this title, because you'll likely to get triggered. Felix's humor (like much of German humour) is a little darker than what some North American audiences may be used to, and it's a little less filtered (a little more raw). Some of his comedy is driven by unexpected shock value, and (ironically) is being blasted for having jokes that are too liberal/inclusive. There were a few moments where I had to explain to my gf that it's funnier in German (because some stuff gets a little lost in translation & context). I want to be clear though, this title is EPICALLY under-rated due to hyper-"liberal" ideological reasons.I don't want to spoil it, so I'll just leave it at this: If you're pretty level-headed, can laugh at yourself or how silly life, moods, and society can be, you'll likely enjoy this feature... and if you're a German-speaking millennial that loves dark humour, this is for 100% for you.
